My personal view is that society inevitably progresses and liberalizes, no matter what the politics are, its going to happen anyway (which is why I don't get overly concerned about elections, society cannot seem to stop its own internal processes).
Specifically concerning slavery, the inevitable liberalization has made us realize that people are people and no group is inherently biologically inferior to another (culture is a different story in my view).
I agree, mmk thanks!
I agree then I think very big complicated heavy things and I revert to my theory that the human race is politically insane. The terminology gets confusing. :

Well, that was a waste of my time.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
